What does the Praxis 5091 study guide consist of?

The Praxis Physical Education 5091 study guide is fully aligned with the skills and categories assessed on the Praxis PE test. The study guide has information and sample practice test questions that cover everything on the test. 

Our Praxis 5091 study guide includes:

  • Detailed sections for each content category that cover everything from the test specifications, so you know exactly what to study for the exam.
  • A full, 120-question practice test with detailed answer explanations organized by competency, so you can see exactly why you got something right or wrong and in what category.
  • Ten practice test questions with detailed answer explanations after each content category, so you can see exactly how those specific types of questions will look on the exam.
  • Practice test questions similar to the exam, so you study relevant material.
  • Quick tips and strategies throughout the study guide, so you can think like a test maker and pass the first time.
  • Detailed answer explanations for every test question in the study guide, so you know exactly why you answered correctly or incorrectly.
  • A Good Words List to help you identify correct answer choices and eliminate bad answer choices quickly, so you can be strategic and successful on test day.

Is the Praxis 5091 hard to pass?

The Praxis 5091 covers a vast amount of content ranging from teaching practices in the PE classroom, nutrition, and human anatomy and physiology. Many of the questions are scenario-based, meaning you will have to identify best practices to use given a PE classroom situation. The test covers all grades–K-12.

This is one of the more difficult Praxis exams because of the complex topics covered in anatomy and physiology. Do not underestimate this exam. The average first time pass rates for most Praxis exams is less than 50%.

You will have two hours to complete the exam.

The exam is administered all at once, meaning you will take all the sections of the exam as one test. There are four content categories with 120 questions total on the exam.

  1. Content Knowledge and Student Growth and Development - 36 questions
  2. Management, Motivation, and Communication - 30 questions
  3. Planning, Instruction, and Student Assessment - 30 questions
  4. Collaboration, Reflection, and Technology - 24 questions

You’ll need to know a lot of information to be successful on this test.

But fear not! Our study guide covers it all.

How many questions do I have to get right to pass the Praxis 5091?

It is difficult to predict exactly how many questions you must get correct to pass the Praxis 5091 because a scale score is used rather than a raw score. This means that your raw score–how many you got correct–is put into a formula to calculate a scale score.

To keep things simple, we recommend scoring at least a 75% on the practice tests before you go in to take the exam. Getting 75% of the questions correct when you practice indicates you are ready to take the actual test.

Does the Praxis 5091 study guide have the same questions as the real exam?

While our study guide is aligned with the test, it is against testing policy to share items on the actual exam. State tests are secure, standardized, and heavily regulated.

There are hundreds of test questions in the item banks for each exam. When you take the exam, your version of the test will be different from other versions and will have questions randomly pulled from the item banks. This ensures test security, validity, and reliability. Trying to memorize what you think will be on your test is an exercise in futility. Instead, you should study the skills and content outlined in the specifications and blueprint of the exam.

Everything in our study guide is aligned with the test specifications and blueprint for the exam. That way, you can review how the test is designed and what skills are assessed. The questions in our study guide are structured similarly to what you will encounter on test day, but they are not the same exact questions on the real exam.

Is this the best study guide for the Praxis 5091?

Obviously, we believe our study guide is the very best resource you can purchase to prepare for the Praxis 5091. Each category has its own section in the guide, and within those categories, we’ve aligned all of the information to the test specifications and blueprint. This ensures you are studying what you will see on test day—nothing more, nothing less.

In each section, there are practice items that align specifically to each category. In addition, we have detailed answer explanations for every question in our study guide. This ensures you know why you got something correct or incorrect. Finally, our study guide contains a full-length practice test with answer explanations. This ensures you know why you got something correct or incorrect. In all, you have 170 practice questions to work with.

Does this study guide contain practice tests?

Yes. There is a full-length practice test at the end of the study guide, and there are practice test questions after each content category. You have approximately 170 practice test questions to work with when you use our study guide. All of the questions are categorized by skill and contain detailed answer explanations.

How long should I study fro the Praxis 5091?

People have a range of skill levels when it comes to this test, so it is difficult for us to tell you exactly how long you need to study. Because this test covers an expansive amount of content, we recommend short, incremental practice over time. This is much better than cramming all your studying into one or two weekends. Using 20-30-minute study sessions over a 2-3 week period is ideal.

What can I teach by passing the Praxis 5091?

States use the Praxis Physical Education: Content Knowledge 5091 to certify their K-12 physical education teachers. However, every state has its own requirements for certification, so be sure to visit your state’s Department of Education website and find out exactly what you’re required to do before registering for the exam or buying materials.

What other study guides should I combine this with?

Most states that use the Praxis 5091 exam also require prospective teachers to pass the the Praxis Core and the Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT).

Depending on the state in which you are seeking certification, this will vary. That’s why you must check with your state’s Department of Education before you purchase test prep materials to determine exactly what tests are required.

Helpful study guide!

Studied this book & did my practice test & got a pretty good passing score. Hopefully the actual test has content given in the book!


This is what i needed. I had used some other programs and wasted money. This program was much better and more affordable. I took the practice tests multiple times and it really helped prepare me for this test. There are some things that will not be covered but thats just how tests work. Super happy I did this. Check out her Youtube videos as well. Very helpful also.

Great test prep!

Reviewed with Praxis the week before the exam. The review and test prep was very helpful familiarizing with the material.

Jessie Erickson
Good Guide, Not As Aligned to Test

The guide itself was great and provided a lot of knowledge. It aligned very nicely to the practice tests provided by the ETS Praxis website. Unfortunately the test had a bunch of other content on it that was not covered.
